Question about Whirlpool GR478LXPS Electric Kitchen Range
Hi - We have just purchased a used Whirlpool WEP84800 Electric Range. It was supposed to be in great condition but when we turn on the oven we hear a "clicking" sound coming from the control panel at the top of the stove accompanied by a low buzzing sound as the oven elements heat up and clicks again every time the elements reheat. Any ideas why this is happening?? thanks in advance.

They have a thermal overload resistor in the burner itself and they have a propensity to burn out, or it could be the infinite switch. You will have to check resistance across the leads that correspond to each pinout. You can find this out by backtracing the wire to each terminal on the block. Replacement of either part is the only option, there are no safe alternatives to repair them. Hope this helps. BTW, you can go here for parts.

I need the Oven knob for the front panel. The numbers have rubbed off on mine. Thanks, in advance, for your help!

I'm afraid you may have a blown Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the functions of the oven. The surface elements are controlled by individual infinite switches behind each control knob.. That's why the surface elements all work, but the oven does not. A replacement EOC can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and you will find it under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 12. There are several listed, based upon the color you need (White, Biscuit, and Black). This is a very simple repair that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish if you wish to perform this on your own. All you have to do is UNPLUG the appliance and remove the back panel of the console to access.
Before assuming the EOC is defective, however, inspect the board to see if it has a fuse on it. I do not have a wiring diagram to confirm. Some of these boards do have fuses and that's all that it may take to repair it. However, if the board shows signs of burned components, replace it. NOTE: Check for any loose connectors to the board as well.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions and/or require additional assistance.

Hi, You will need to change the burner switch as well. It shorted out when the element went bad.
Please let me know if I can assist you with part # or anything else.
